Old Farts Rule OK!

I have come across a number of words referring to forms of government ending with the suffix ocracy such as democracy, autocracy, aristocracy etc.

On tonight's BBC World News I came across one that I have never heard before. Referring to the older people who ruled the USSR some time ago - Auntie called them a Gerontocracy.

A Gerontocracy, apparently, is a political system ruled over by a Miserable Old Fart - sounds good to me!
